Deviation - Procedural MEL
August 2015; I was called onto an aircraft due to a 'sys 2 reg' fault. Deferred item through lead and maintenance operations control (moc). Aircraft blocked out and I connected the MEL through ipad/digital communications under 'deferred aircraft maintenance technician (remove from work)'.upon arriving to work four days later; I was informed of the inadvertent fact [clearing] of the MEL. I explained the events that took place four days earlier to my manager and senior manager and came to the conclusion that there was an ipad digital communication malfunction. I believe we can prevent this event from happening again by fixing the ipad/digital communications [software] issues. Ipad facted [cleared] MEL.
